Does anyone know when the Blue Angels will be arriving in the San Francisco Bay Area this weekend for Fleet Week? Will they be staging at SFO? Any details are appreciated about the logistics behind this amazing event.

Quoting Leamside (Reply 5): They do a formation fly-by above the runway, break up and file a single line while heading downwind, base, final and landing. It has always been this way for the past years at SFO
- I have seen U.S. Air Force F-15s do that at IND (after doing fly-bys at IMS) in the past but I was not sure about U.S.N. at SFO.
Flying is the second greatest thrill known to mankind, landing is the first!
